New York: McLoughlin Bros. c. 1870.
Original mahogany box with superb color pictorial insert on cover, inserted pane of glass with central hand-spinner, onlaid printed instructions and one sheet of answers affixed to glass, three double-sided question discs and two further pictorial onlays with answers, sliding lid with chromo-pictorial design featuring a wizard and black cat. Overall 30x30 cm (11” x 11"). An early trivia game whereby general knowledge questions are magically answered by the hand-spinner. When the question on the center disc is aligned, the magnetic hand-spinner will point to the correct answer printed on the matching overlay. Rare. Light wear to box, spinning hand not functioning correctly; two additional answer overlays with some chipping and tearing, backed with brown paper to prevent further damage; very good.
